Dear Fr. John and the MQP Family,
Please accept my warmest thanks for the reception on May 21 and the wonderful parting gift. I was happy to see so many friendly faces and have a chance to say goodbye in person. My greatest thanks is owed, however, for the kindness and support I have felt during my five years as principal at Mary Queen of Peace School. These years have been filled with great personal, professional and spiritual growth and will forever be a part of me. Thanks for allowing me to be part of such a wonderful community, and know that you will be in my prayers often. As I spend my last few days in the office before moving on to St. Justin the Martyr, I know I am leaving you in the capable and faith-filled hands of your new principal, Mr. Michael Nie- man. I trust that many good things will come under his leadership with the support of our wonderful staff, students, parents and parishioners. I bid you the fondest of farewells and ask that you keep me in your prayers.
